HCG Frequently Asked Questions

Happy Shrinkers drops and injections contain a natural hormone called HCG, stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.  This is a hormone naturally produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone. This hormone allows the body to metabolize fat and use it as energy for both mother and foetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use only a very small amount to capitalise on this same mechanism. Using the product in this way does not mimic pregnancy; in fact, it can be safely used by both men and women. Women may experience very high levels during pregnancy with no adverse effects. Currently, there are no known established clinical side effects. WHO CANNOT USE THE INJECTIONS: Breastfeeding & Pregnant women | Those with Diabetes Type 1 | Men with Testicular or Prostate Cancer | Anyone with Heart Disease | Women suffering from PCOS | Those suffering from gall bladder problem as the injections has been found to aggravate due low fat intake.

No. Exercise is not a mandatory part of the Happy Shrinkers Diet. While vigorous exercise may increase the amount of weight you lose while on this plan, it is not a significant increase and is not recommended. This is because on a 800 calorie diet you can easily become too exhausted. That leads to discouragement and frustration. However, we do recommend moderate activity for all of the other benefits you receive, including stress relief and cardiovascular health.

If you are already accustomed to exercising at a certain level and would like to continue, do so, however do not over do it. Pay attention to your body’s response. Scale down the intensity of the workouts if: 1. you don’t have the energy to get through it; 2. you start feeling ill or light headed; 3. you gain weight the next day; or 4. you don’t have the energy to get through the day after you work out.

The hormone in the product is naturally found in all the human tissue of all males and females alike.  It is therefore safe for men to use.  Men actually get faster results and tend to lose more weight than women.

Yes indeed! Patients report that they feel terrific throughout the treatment period. Their skin condition improves and they look healthy.Many cannot wait to report the decrease in the body circumferences! Their clothes fit so much better and due to the fast decrease in body fat that is taking place, a complete remodeling of the body contour is reported. No other obesity treatment can decrease the amount of body fat and this also obviously contributes to that amazing feeling of well being.

Also they notice a decrease in the size of their body circumferences, referred as “Clothes fit fine, better than any other regular diet”. A very important remodeling of body contour is observed (due to the fact that Happy Shrinkers diet decreases body fat better than any other obesity treatment).

Happy Shrinkers treatment will not interact with any medications. It has safely been taken since the 1950’s and no side effects have ever been reported. This includes statins, birth control pills and injections.

Lots of Happy Shrinker users call it a weight loss “cure” rather than just another weight loss method, After finishing the program and losing the weight, it resets your body to use stored fat for energy when it detects calorie reduction for a period of time.  It then helps you optimally maintain your weight and efficiently keep off the kilograms and centimeters you have shed.

It is true that normally when cutting back on calories and fat, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down.  This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy.  When a low calorie diet is used in conjunction with the drops or injections, the hormone signals the body to use stored fat for energy, and will eliminate excess fat reserves.  It is a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result. The HCG keeps the body from going into starvation mode and holding onto fat as it resets your metabolism.

According to Dr.Simeons, the first doctor to pioneer the HCG Diet, if the diet protocol is followed the ending result will be that the hypothalamus gland (the gland that helps regulate weight & metabolism) will be reset.  Dr Simeons suggests that the body rethinks how to handle stored fat and appetite.

The Happy Shrinkers diet is balanced, unlike many extreme “fad” diets out there.  It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch.  You eat them in specific portions and combinations.

If you are pregnant DO NOT take the injections. If you become pregnant during the Happy Shrinkers diet, stop taking the injections / Drops and consult your GP.
